The Newcastle vs Aston Villa live stream is a crucial match for the home side as they look to move further clear of the relegation zone. The visiting Aston Villa will be no pushover though, as they'll be looking to bounce back after a frustrating draw in the last round of EPL fixtures.
Newcastle United are out of the relegation zone for the first time in almost four months and all it took was a £305 million takeover, a new manager and a £92 million outlay on five new players. The Magpies have been quietly finding form in recent weeks and their convincing 3-1 rout of Everton in midweek was clear proof of how far the team has come.
Currently unbeaten in their last four EPL games, including back to back victories, the Magpies will be brimming with confidence going into this important fixture. They'll be without new left back signing Matt Targett, as he’s on loan from Villa and is ineligible to play against his parent club, but Kieran Trippier has recovered from injury and starts here. Dan Burn also gets a debut following his signing from Brighton last month.
Aston Villa had selection issues of their own, with Emi Buendia and Philippe Coutinho both picking up knocks against Leeds in midweek, but both are fit to start. However, Ezri Konsa will definitely miss this one due to suspension.
The side will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing draw at home to Leeds. At one point the Midlands side was 3-1 up, but crumbled under pressure and the match finished all square.
It’s been a fairly unremarkable season for Aston Villa, who sit in 11th place right now, but a win here could kickstart a push up the table. European football is almost certainly out of reach, but Gerrard will no doubt want to finish in the top half of the table.
Here's how they line up:
Newcastle: Dubravka, Trippier, Burn, Schar, Manquillo, Willock, Shelvey, Joelinton, Fraser, Saint-Maximin, Wood.
Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Chambers, Mings, Digne, McGinn, Luiz, Ramsey, Buendia, Coutinho, Watkins.
